47.1 New Sound

In this task, students will learn the sound /k/ as in kind.

This is another stop phoneme (like t/, /d/, /g/, /h/, /k/ (written as c), and /b/). Make sure you do not stop at the arrow under the sound, and take care to make as little of a vowel sound after it as possible. It should be /k/ not /kŭh/.

47.3 The Slow-Fast Game

This task returns to segmenting and blending words that have initial and final consonant blends and whose initial consonant blends are composed of a continuous phoneme followed by a stop phoneme. (Sting is an exception because it doesn’t have a final blend.) This time, however, the instructor will not tell students the words before saying them slowly, and the instructor will not say them slowly with the students before students try on their own.

47.4 Word Reading

The final part of this task introduces reading irregular words and words with final consonant blends when there are no symbols beneath the words.

47.5 Story Reading
